Chapter 7 bankruptcy was designed to eliminate debt by discharging, that is, forgiving, much or all unsecured debts. Unsecured debt is any debt not directly tied to property and typically includes credit cards, medical bills, personal loans and payday loans.
In rare cases, Chapter 7 bankruptcy also involves a sale of some property to repay other debts. But, Nebraska bankruptcy laws outline exemptions that, in the majority of cases, prevent any property sale. Exempt property may not be sold and is fully protected. In Nebraska, these exemptions include the following.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy tends to work well for filers who have a regular income but faced some unexpected economic setback. It works by outlining a three- to five-year repayment plan so that filers can get up to date on late payments while staying current with others.
You may have also heard that Chapter 13 bankruptcy may help prevent foreclosure. This is because the automatic stay prevents creditors from making any collection efforts. Mortgage foreclosure is considered a form of collection, so the foreclosure of your home may be prevented for the duration of your Chapter 13 case.
The above information may seem a bit daunting. Fortunately, help is readily available. A Nebraska bankruptcy lawyer can answer your questions, take you through filing bankruptcy and help you make a decision on your debt and your future.
